If you are a lover of nautical activities, join us on a journey through the best that Porto has to offer in the River and Sea.
Sail the waters of the Douro River
Board the traditional Rabelo boat and sail the waters of the Douro. The cruise through the 6 bridges, as the name suggests, enables you to see the bridges that connect the neighbouring cities, Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia, from the oldest to the most modern bridge: Freixo Bridge, São João Bridge, Maria Pia Bridge, Infante Bridge, Luiz I Bridge and Arrábida Bridge.
During the trip, take the opportunity to admire the view of various places in both cities, such as the historic area of Ribeira, Palácio da Bolsa, Alfândega do Porto, Foz do Douro, Port Wine Cellars, Monastery of Serra do Pilar and much more.
Venture into a Surf Lesson
Free your adventurous spirit and take part in a surf lesson on the waves of the Atlantic.
You can enjoy discounts with the official city card, Porto.CARD, at two surf schools: Surfaventura and Fish Surf School. In these schools, they ensure the safety during the surf lessons, equipment and, of course, lots of fun.
You can also buy surf lessons at our tourist offices, from 40 euros. The experience includes the lesson and transfer to or from the centre of Porto.
Ready to tame the waves of our coast? We are sure you will love and develop a taste for this water sport.
Rent a stand-up paddle board
After surfing, bodyboarding or windsurfing, there is a new water sport winning over many hearts. We are talking, of course, about stand-up paddle.
If you already feel comfortable on a board, you can rent one at Surfaventura to enjoy our sea. If you are new to the sport, know that the same school also offers classes for all levels and ages, both privately and in groups.
Or you can also buy the paddle lessons directly at our tourist offices, from 40 euros.
Relax aboard a yacht
It is true that the rabelo boats are the most traditional way of traveling the Douro, but the truth is that there are other ways to enjoy the trip along its waters.
Gather your family and/or friends and embark on a unique experience with Feel Douro (up to 10% off with Porto.CARD), aboard a yacht with crew and where you can have meals and even spend the night.
At our tourist offices, it is also possible to purchase yacht tours, and you can, for example, take a two-hour tour during the sunset.
